AS Malaysia strives towards a developed nation status, engineers have a key role to play in enhancing the quality of life through the advancement of science and technology.
With such a pivotal role to play, qualified and skilled engineers are in escalating demand and will remain to be throughout the world.
KDU College, in collaboration with Northumbria University, UK, contributes to the development of the engineering profession in Malaysia by offering the Bachelor of Engineering ( Hons) in Electrical and Electronic Engineering.
It is a strong academic and practical training to facilitate the progression of students to various technical and professional skills in electrical and electronics engineering.
Electrical and Electronic Engineering at Northumbria University is ranked 45th in the Complete University Guide ( UK) 2016, making it the top twinning university in Malaysia in this field.
The three- year degree programme – which mirrors the curriculum delivered at Northumbria University under – is developed to stimulate learners to acquire a deeper understanding of the essential facts, concepts, theories and principles of electrical engineering and its underpinning science and mathematics.
The degree combines electrical and electronic engineering, and students can opt for pathways in telecommunications and power.
The Bachelor of Engineering ( Hons) programme is designed to produce self- reliant engineering and technical graduates.
In doing so, it fulfils the engineering and technical manpower requirement of the country’s rapidly growing local industrial landscape.
The programme is ideal for students with a good aptitude in math and science, and perfect for those who find excitement in exploring the practical application of technology in solving problems, both creatively and logically.
“The Bachelor of Engineering ( Hons) in Electrical and Electronic Engineering programme is a carefully structured programme, developed to produce versatile and adaptable graduates who are experts of this area of study,” said KDU College’s School of Engineering and Technology head Sivajothi Paramasivam.
The programme also offers flexibility in a student’s study route.
Students are able to chart their own study pathway, be it 3+ 0, 2+ 1, 1+ 2 or 2+ 2 ( Masters of Engineering).
KDU is also focused on providing a holistic learning experience, injecting project- based learning through collaboration with industry partners.
Its engineering faculty has an excellent combination of research and industry experience to give students the best of both worlds.
Students pursuing their studies at KDU College will also garner a great student experience through a continuous programme called First Year Experience, which eases students’ transition to college, strengthens their academic skills, develops their soft skills and provides them with a platform for career placement.
Students at KDU College will also obtain a co- curricular transcript, a second transcript that tracks students’ official record of honours, awards and recognitions, leadership activities and organisational experiences, professional development and educational training, and community service. This transcript complements the students’ academic transcript, provides prospective employers and/ or graduate schools with information on the student’s involvement with co- curricular activities.
“The degree programme is streamlined from Northumbria’s syllabus to offer students an education that mirrors Northumbria University in the UK.
“Students pursuing their degrees at KDU College are rest assured of a great learning experience,” said Sivajothi.
Established in 1983, and a pioneer in Malaysian private education, KDU College was one of the first private colleges in Malaysia to have its own purpose- built campus.
KDU College’s focus of offering quality programmes with top universities around the world and inspiring its students to greater heights has never wavered. Its close collaboration with top- ranking foreign university partners also ensures students of globally recognised bachelor degree qualifications that are equivalent to those awarded by the partners’ home campuses.
KDU College students thus have the best of both worlds at their doorstep.
